Just yesterday fans celebrated the third year anniversary of the late Nipsey Hussle’s debut album ‘Victory Lap’. As many are now believing the project as a transcending classic, Hussle’s debut is only a glimpse into what could have transpired for the Los Angeles native.
As new releases become a surprise for Hussle fans, recent collabs with Big Sean, Hit-Boy, and Jay-Z have all reminded us of his greatness and potential, stic.man of Dead Prez has revealed what Nip had in mind for future projects. Speaking with Peter Rosenberg and the Juan Is Dead podcast, Stic shared that Nip had plans to deliver three albums under his Atlantic Records contract, and one of those albums would include a remake of Dead Prez’ ‘Let’s Get Free’. Stic detailed his conversation with Hussle nearly a year prior to his untimely death, where Nipsey revealed his three album vision.
“We had an hour-long conversation about what he had been trying to do up to that point as an independent, and how he wanted his situation to be with Atlantic. He had made it to some certain personal goals he had. What he wanted to talk to me about was his three-album mission. He was going to do Victory Lap, he was going to do another album, and he would do a final album he’d owe Atlantic called The Spook Who Sat By The Door.”
Nip’s version of “Let’s Get Free” would be included in his third and final Atlantic offering and be something that honored Dead Prez and re-introduced them to a new generation.
